Chase Sapphire Preferred APPROVAL!! (College Student)

I've been preparing my credit file for over a year just for this card and was blown away with the limit I got. Approved for $11.4k! I was expecting $5k, but Chase really came through and topped AMEX. Going for my next 3X CLI with AMEX in 2 weeks, hopefully they will get jealous and give me the full $27k CL.

 

Instant approval; called in and had it expedited!

 

Note: I am a college student and have no prior relationships with Chase. No in-branch or online pre-approvals either. It is possible, guys!

 

Here are my stats from before the app!

FICO's: EX (2) 743, TU (3) 749

1% utilization, no baddies

Oldest acct = 20 mo, AAOA = 16 mo

(1/17) AMEX BCP @ $9k CL, 0% util

(3/17) Discover It @ $2.6k CL, 0% util

Re: Chase Sapphire Preferred APPROVAL!! (College Student)

Congrats!!! Its nice to see this being done. I am a college student as well and Im preparing my credit profile to apply in about 6 months. Our profiles are very similar down to the students loan minus length of credit, so hopefully chase will come around. I am going to open a savings acc with them tomo just to be on the plus side lol.

Currently, Chase has a checking bonus of $300 (much easier to meet the requirements) and savings bonus of $200, if you can meet the minimum requirements.
